It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall." (Romans -21) That verse says it loud and clear: Don’t drink alcohol if it will offend a brother or sister in Christ.Paul explained in 1 Corinthians 9 that even though he was allowed to eat and drink anything he wanted, he was very careful not to do things that would hinder the gospel of Christ.The only thing that can be said for certain about the intended readers based on the content of the letter itself is that (1) they were Christians, (2) they appear to have been well-known to the author (and he to them), and (3) they were facing a threat from false teaching, a threat which was both serious and which appears to have arisen from within their Christian community(1 John -19).Because of this lack of specific information in the letter itself, the attempt to understand something of the background and setting of the Johannine letters is related to two other areas which also require discussion: (1) authorship and (2) the identity of the adversaries (i.e., the false teachers against which the author of 1 John is writing).Some Christians believe that alcohol is always sinful. God says, "If your brother is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love.Do not by your eating destroy your brother for whom Christ died.In other words, what we can say about the identity of the recipients of 1 John (and the other two Johannine letters as well) is inextricably linked to what we can say about the author of the letters and about his adversaries whom he was writing against.We have already concluded in our discussion of authorship that there are no compelling reasons for rejecting the traditional ascription of authorship to the Apostle John.
Remember that as you read these articles, the Holy Spirit will give you understanding and discernment to make the right decision for your walk with Jesus Christ!
"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit...
Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification....
I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings." (1 Corinthians -23)If I was trying to witness to someone who thought it was bad for Christians to drink, there’s no way I would drink alcohol in front of that person!
The Bible contains lots of warnings about how tempting and dangerous it is to get involved with alcohol.
Instead, be filled with the Spirit." (Ephesians 5:6) In fact, there are many verses in the Bible which speak out against drunkenness.
